An Author’s Afternoon: Overture of Hope

Join Isabel Vincent and Alexandra Fee in a Q & A discussion about Vincent's new book, Overture of Hope.

Overture of Hope tells the tale of the Cook sisters in 1930s Europe, who both share a passion for opera. This takes them on frequent trips to Germany and Austria to see their favorite stars perform. But as clouds of war gather, the stars of Continental opera, many of whom are Jewish, face dark futures under the Nazis.

What can two British spinsters do? Against all odds, the sisters conspired to bring together worldwide opera aficionados and insiders in an operation to rescue Jews in the opera from horrific fates. By the time war did arrive, the Cooks and their operatives had plucked over two dozen Jewish men and women from the looming maw of the Holocaust and spirited them to safety in England.
